【Description】

オリエント時計は1950年創業の歴史ある国産時計メーカーで、かつてはセイコー、シチズンに次ぐ3番手として様々な機械式時計を世に送り出していました。

王道のモデルはもちろん、セイコーやシチズンには無い、独特なデザインや色使いの時計があります。現在はセイコーエプソンの一部門となっています。

1963年に発売されたオリエントのオリンピアオリエントウィークリーです。61年に発売されたオリンピアオリエントというモデルをベースに日付と曜日の機能を追加しました。

手巻き式で曜日・日付を搭載した時計は以外と無く、かなり珍しい時計とも言えます。6時上に漢字で曜日が表示されるのがポイントです。

スイマーというのは防水ケースでスクリューバックのものを指します。スイマー表示の無い、スナップバックのものも存在します。

日付の変更は針を動かして10時から2時くらいまでを往復させる方式です。曜日の変更は針を24時間分動かすことで可能です。

先に曜日を合わせて、その後に日付を針の往復で合わせるというのが良いかと思います。

※こちらの時計はOH後渡しとなります。ご注文後、約4週間後のお渡しになります。
OH後、6ヶ月保証となります。

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
